Real-Time Bus Tracker Tutorial

Here’s how to read the red marquee numbers on Bloomfield’s new Bus Tracker.

There are FOUR easy things to read after the diamonds:
1. The Bus Number;
2. Inbound or Outbound;
3. Arrival time of next bus; and,
4. How many minutes until that arrival time.

In this example video:
1. The 54;
2. Inbound;
3. 9:25 AM; and,
4. 0 Minutes (It has arrived!)
